Burne Horgarth: Dynamic Figure Drawing

Image provided by: Amazon
I like drawing naked people. It's a fact.

Now let's start this review. Dynamic Figure Drawing by Burne Hogarth is a relatively popular book considering it's an art book. Chances are if you ever had an art teacher or looked around on forums someone has recommended this book. So why are you reading this? Good point. I don't know. Maybe it's because my little reviews give you a jolly chuckle - either way you're bored enough to read this so let’s get on with it.

How to Draw Vampires - A Book Review

Image Provided by Amazon.
*Stops Sparkling* - Ah well... That's kind of embarrassing really... 

How to Draw Vampires is a book written by Mike Butkus and Merrie Destefano. The illustrations shown in the book are by Mike Butkus. And no. They don't sparkle. However that is not the most surprising part about this book, the most surprising part about this book is the fact that it is really really good. Really. So lets begin this review!

New Layout/Template

Working on a new template. I apparently got a complaint about it being confusing and too much. - Trying to tone it down. I'm thinking it's the background and the ads that are causing the noise. So gonna try and fix that. Please comment if the template bothers you.

Space Ship Environment

Just a little speed paint thing I did. Mainly just used this for reference:
Reference
Didn't really look at anything for the floating ship. Mainly focusing on creating a environment I suppose. Again I did not copy the reference exactly and was focused on creating something believable without to much imitation. Or at least that's what I like telling myself :3

Any comments or critiques would be helpful. I'm pretty new at painting environments.
